• Thomson Reuters and Overleaf Partner to Simplify the Journal Publishing Submission Process

    Posted by Mary Anne on November 5, 2015

    Boston – Nov 5 Thomson Reuters, an intelligent information provider for scholarly publishers, partners with Overleaf, an online Rich Text and LaTeX collaborative writing and publishing tool. This new partnership will allow authors to directly submit manuscripts created in the Overleaf platform to the thousands of journals that use the Thomson Reuters – ScholarOne submission and peer review system.

    The ScholarOne and Overleaf integration will greatly simplify the submission process for authors while helping journals capture structured manuscript metadata, composed PDF documents, and correctly compiled LaTeX files.

    Publishers who work with Overleaf and/or ScholarOne can now offer their authors the value-add of a 1-click submission process. Authors can write, collaborate and submit to a journal, all from within the Overleaf platform. This simplified workflow is easy to set up and implement and provides an elegant solution to author submission frustration.

    Josh Dahl, Head of Publishing & Associations within Thomson Reuters IP & Science says,

    “Simplifying the end user experience is an important priority for Thomson Reuters. The integration between ScholarOne and Overleaf goes beyond ingestion and truly supports the researcher’s workflow, from initial submission to edits and revisions. We are excited to launch this partnership for our customers and authors.”

    John Hammersley, Co-Founder and CEO at Overleaf adds,

    “The integration with ScholarOne will allow Overleaf to quickly and easily integrate with thousands of journals – providing those journal’s authors with a much simplified submission process. We’re always looking for ways to ease the scientific writing and publishing process and this fits perfectly with that goal.”

    This new submission option will be available December 2015 – several major international publishers have already signed up to use the integration upon its release.
